About The Rye

Peter Bignell embodies so much of what is exciting about the Australian craft spirits movement.

He is a one-man show that grows, distils and bottles his own Rye Whisky and is a pioneer of sustainable distilling practices using biofuel to power his farming equipment and his hand-made still.

The White Rye is a spirit double-distilled from 100% rye grain grown on his property. This spends no time in oak, only subtle toasty flavours and aromas imparted by Peter's use of a rarely-used "direct-fire" method of heating his still.

This is a unique spirit in the Australian landscape and terrific value for those looking to explore a wider range of craft spirits from Australia. This is hand-crafted, in the truest sense of the term.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Extremely fruity, citrus fruits, mainly oranges and tangerines, creamy like an emulsion, vanilla, dried banana flakes, grainy and nutty, cellar stored apples, dried apricot. Grainy, ripe and long stored apples, orange zests, creamy texture, slightly spicy and peppery. Again very grainy, slightly spicy with a whiff of cinnamon and Xmas aromas. Very smooth and clean, this white rye whisky can be easily enjoyed neat and is also a great addition for a mixed drink." - Peter Bignell

Additional Info

From The Producer

I grow my own ryecorn to produce a 100% rye whisky.

I built my copper pot still from scratch. It is direct fired with biofuel which is used cooking oil, from a roadhouse next to my farm.

Hot water is also biofuel heated. My tractors, forklift and truck also run on Biodiesel made from the used cooking oil.

The only significant material I bring to the farm is waste cooking oil and the main product to leave is whisky.

The spent mash is fed to the Belgrove sheep. Cooling water comes from my dam and the waste water is either recycled or used for irrigation, including the next rye crop.

Brewing and diluting water is harvested from my roofs – I have a lot of farm sheds.  Yeast is often reused.

Here are some catch words that could describe my operation, such as “sustainable” “closed loop” “small carbon footprint” “green” “farm based” “value adding” “craft” “low food miles”.
